        Collection of Nine (9) Lithographs on Gastronomy

      1823. |~||~||~|FRENCH GASTRONOMY BOILLY, Louis Léopold. Collection of Nine (9) Hand-Coloured Lithographs on Gastronomy. Small folio (see individual sizes below). Each lithograph professionally matted. Preserved in a black custom cloth and wood folding box. Paris: Delpech, 1823-27. |~||~||~||~| First issue of these lithographs, the state with the "très délicat" original hand-colouring. Expressive and humorous, these French scenes on the theme of gastronomy offer a cross-section of early nineteenth-century French men, women, and children engaged in drinking wine and l'eau de vie, eating oysters, ice cream, grapes, doughnuts, and cracking and consuming nuts. Not only exceptional for the gastronomical interest, the Boilly images of tight clusters of expressive faces showcase French caricature at its very best. Printed on thick paper without watermark. These nine lithographs belong to the voluminous suite entitled Recueil de grimaces created by Boilly and printed by the lithographer François-Séraphin Delpech (1778-1825). The complete suite comprises ninety-six lithographs and survives complete in one copy only (see below). The Boilly lithographs were mostly sold as single sheets, either in black and white or, for a premium price, with the "très délicat" artistic hand-colouring. Louis Léopold Boilly's (1761-1845) career spanned the Ancien Regime, the French Revolution, the age of Napoleon, the Bourbon Restoration, and the July Monarchy. He was the son of a wood sculptor, and became a portrait and genre scene painter, specializing in Parisian social customs and scenes of the middle class. Laran and Adhémar state that Boilly produced over 1000 genre paintings and between 4000 and 5000 portraits during his career. Boilly is also known as a pioneer of lithography, being credited with producing the first lithograph in France on June 9, 1802, a portrait of Johann Theodor Susemihl, which "passé pour la plus ancienne lithographie française à date certain" (Laran and Adhémar, p. 52). He exhibited at the Paris salon between 1791 and 1823, receiving a gold medal at the Salon in 1804. Boilly was made Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur in 1833. Rarity: Since the series was more often sold in single prints, complete sets of Boilly's Grimaces are of exceptional rarity; OCLC lists only three sets, each with various plate counts: the Bibliothéque nationale de France is the only institution with the complete number of 96 lithographs. A collection of 68 Boilly lithographs from Grimaces is located at the Kunstbibliothek Staatliche Museum zu Berlin, and a suite of 8 plates is located at the Getty Museum. Single Boilly lithographs in black and white appear on the print market with some regularity. Condition: very fine impressions with delicate, artistic hand-colouring.

        Reliquiae Diluvianae; or, Observations on the Organic Remains contained in Caves, Fissures, and Diluvial Gravel, and on other Geological Phenomena, attesting the Action of an Universal Deluge.

      London: John Murray, . First edition. 1823 - Pp. vii, [1], 303; 27 engraved or lithographed plates and maps (3 are finely hand-colored - 1 is folding), 1 folding printed table, some text-figures. Contemporary tan full-calf leather, spine with 5 raised bands lettered in gilt on black morocco title/author label in one compartment and with elaborate gilt decorations in the other five compartments, all page edges with marbling, 4to (11 x 8.5 inches). William Buckland (1784 - 1856) was an English theologian and geologist/paleontologist, writing the first full account of a fossil dinosaur (Megalosaurus). His work proving that Kirkdale Cave had been a prehistoric hyena den was praised as an example of how scientific analysis could reconstruct events from the distant past (this study is documented in 'Reliquiae Diluvianae'). Buckland was a proponent of the Gap Theory that interpreted the biblical account of Genesis as referring to two separate episodes of creation separated by a lengthy period; it emerged in the late 18th and early 19th centuries as a way to reconcile the scriptural account with discoveries in geology that suggested the earth was very old (modified after Wiki). In this volume, Buckland presents his "Gap Theory;" concluding "that species of animals that now exist together only in the tropics had coexisted in northern Europe with species still in existence and that this demonstrated a tropical climate in antediluvial times, before the deluge buried the bones in a layer of mud" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, vol. II: 569). A scientifically valuable work that paved the way for our modern understanding of the age of the Earth and the role that geology plays in landscape evolution. From the library of Henry Labouchère with his armorial bookplate on the front endpaper. Labouchère (1831 - 1912) was an English politician, writer, publisher and theatre owner in the Victorian and Edwardian eras. Labouchère, was a member of parliament and edited his own magazine, 'Truth' (modified after Wiki). A few old mars to the calf covers, spine has been expertly rebacked with the original calf spine strip laid on with no loss (this old repair is barely noticeable), endpapers show some light marginal browning, the text and plates are tight, bright and clean with no defects, there is some minor offsetting from some plates onto their facing text or blank page; this is a beautiful copy of a rare work in near fine condition.

        The Plays of William Shakspeare

      London - F. C. and J. Rivington, 1823 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thecomplete set of thisten volume1823 edition of Shakespeare's plays, uniformly bound. New edition. Accurately printed from the text of the corrected copy left by the late George Stevens IN 1773-93,and includes Samuel Johnson's famous preface. Steevens employed Johnson's text, but continued Capell's trend of adding new material and working from the original quartos rather than previous editors' own fanciful emendations, such as those of Warburton. Featuring a portrait frontispiece of Shakespeare to volume one. George Steevens was a celebrated literary editor andscholar,and commentator of Shakespeare's plays. Steevens's major achievements lie in the contributions he made to Shakespeare scholarship, to the study of early English drama, and to the study of Hogarth's work. He resurrected twenty of the Shakespeare quartos in 1766. The edition was obviously considered a valuable addition to the study of Shakespeare's plays. By 1779 Steevens had already acquired a well-deserved reputation as an editor of Shakespeare, because of his help not only with Johnson's 1765 Shakespeare and his, Steevens's, revision of the 1773 edition, but also with the later 1778 JohnsonSteevens Shakespeare, in which Johnson corrected or added to some of his earlier notes, adding but one new note. The reviewers for the Monthly Review and the Critical Review praised Steevens's efforts, and he became one of the most well-regarded of Shakespeare's editors. DNBComplete in ten volumes. Condition: Rebound in calf bindings with gilt designs to the spines. Externally, rubbing and marks to the boards, and wear to extremities. Six volumes have slight loss to the spines, and lifting to backstrips. Three front joints are slightly starting, with two rear joints very slightly starting. All hinges are very slightly strained. Internally, all are generally firmly bound, but with some leaves working loose. Bright, and generally clean throughout, with the odd spot, which isslightly heavier to endpapers. Overall: GOOD..

        Peter von Cornelius (1783 Düsseldorf-Berlin 1867), im Hausrock mit Künstlermütze; Büste im Dreiviertelprofil nach rechts, 1852. Peter von Cornelius, Büste im Profil nach links.

      . 2 Holzstiche mit ockerfarbenen Tonplatten gedruckt und mit weißen Lichtern, auf China. Darstellungsgröße 17,5:15,2 cm, bzw. 17,5:15 cm, Blattgröße 38:51,2 cm. Gedruckt von C.C. Meinhold & Söhne, Dresden; erschienen im Commissionsverlag Gaber & Richter, Dresden. Mit den faksimilierten Zeilen von Cornelius' Hand unter dem linken Bildnis: "Zweifeln mag und grübeln im Reiche des Wissens der Forscher / Doch in den Sphären der Kunst erleuchte der Glaube die Bahn. / P. v. Cornelius" und unter dem rechten Bildnis, vermutlich - von Elise Crola - die faksimilierten Zeilen: "Wenn ich Ihn nur habe / laß ich grau mich selbst". Probedrucke. Bei dem Holzschneider, von dem beide Porträts stammen, handelt es sich vermutlich um August Gaber (1823 Köppernig/Neiße_Berlin 1894), Schwiegersohn Ludwig Richters, der auch für diesen, Julius Schnorr von Carolsfeld u.a. in Holz geschnitten hat. Der Verlag Gaber & Richter löste sich 1860 auf. Dieser Umstand läßt eine recht genaue Datierung der Holzschnitte zu, nämlich zwischen 1852 und 1860. Die Vorzeichnung zu dem linken Bildnis entstand 1852 anläßlich eines elftägigen Besuches von Cornelius und seiner Familie im Haus des Künstlerehepaares Crola in Ilsenburg. (Vgl. Ausst. Katalog: G. Ilte, Elise Crola. Romantische Zeichnungen. Wernigerode, 2008, S. 22/23). Die Zeichnung befindet sich noch heute im Besitz der Familie Cornelius. Dass Bildnis rechts ist vermutlich zu einem anderen Zeitpunkt entstanden, da die Haare von Cornelius länger sind als auf dem linken Porträt, und grau.. Elise Crola, Tochter eines Bankiers, wuchs in einem künstlerisch-musisch orientierten Elternhaus auf. Hier verkehrten neben Wissenschaftlern auch Maler und Bildhauer wie W. von Schadow (1788-1862), Chr.D. Rauch (1777-1857), C.J. Begas (1794-1854), C.W. Wach (1787-1845) und ihr Vetter E.J.F. Bendemann (1811-1889), der spätere Direktor der Dresdner Gemäldegalerie. Ihre Eltern förderten die künstlerische Begabung ihrer Tochter - auch Schadow, der sie in jungen Jahre porträtiert hatte ("Die Poesie"), empfahl ihren Eltern, das Talent ihrer Tochter zu fördern. So erhielt sie früh Zeichenunterricht durch den Porträt- und Miniaturmaler J.F. Zimmermann (tätig 1796-1838). Im Alter von 18 Jahren heiratete sie den vierzehn Jahre älteren Baron K.H.L. von Weiher; die kinderlose Ehe wurde 1836 auf Drängen ihrer Familie und gegen ihren Willen geschieden. Kurz darauf lernte sie in Berlin den Maler Georg Heinrich Crola (1804-1879) kennen, sie trafen sich wieder in Ilsenburg, wo sie sich bevorzugt aufhielt, und heirateten 1840. Gemeinsam entschied man, in Ilsenburg sesshaft zu werden und erwarb schließlich 1847 ein großes Haus. Obwohl sie fünf Kinder gebar, unternahm sie gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann nicht nur zahlreiche Fahrten nach Berlin, Dresden und auf die Insel Rügen, sondern auch nach Dänemark, Schweden und in die Alpen. Zudem führten sie in Ilsenburg ein reges gesellschaftliches Leben. Zu ihren Künstlerfreunden zählten u.a. P. von Cornelius (1783-1867), L. Richter (1803-1884) und W. von Kügelgen (1802-1867). Elise zeigte zudem ein ausgeprägtes soziales Engagement und wurde zur Wohltäterin der Alten und Armen. Nicht näher zu spezifizierende Beschwerden zwangen sie jedoch zu Reisen, z.B. eine vermutlich anderthalbjährigere Reise gemeinsam mit ihrem Mann 1854 in die Schweiz. Auch zwei längere Aufenthalte in Italien zwecks Erholung sind zu belegen. Ihr künstlerisches Schaffen, sie arbeitete meist mit dem Bleistift, selten in Aquarell, wird von figürlichen Themen, Porträts, Tierdarstellungen, Veduten und Landschaften bestimmt. Daneben betätigte sie sich bildhauerisch (Porträts). Später bemalte sie auch Porzellane und Gebrauchsgegenstände. Im Hüttenmuseum Ilsenburg wurde Ende der 1990er Jahre eine Crola-Stube eingerichtet.

        Recherches chimiques sur les corps gras d’origine animale

      Paris: F. G. Levrault, 1823 With 1 plate and 3 folding tables, numerous text tables. An extraordinary copy, unpressed and bound in the original printed boards; some foxing. From the library of Eleanor R. Webster, professor of chemistry at Wellesley College. Preserved in a folding clamshell box. First edition of the author?'s classic study of animal fats. He determined that fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol, easily separated by saponification. He also discovered several chemical species such as oleic, butyric, caproic and capric acids, stearic acid (?"stearine?"), cholesterol (?"cholesterine?") and glycerol (?"glycérine?"). The first part contains definitions and descriptions of Chevreul?'s method of analysis, as well as a description of all species of fats and their saponification products. He here describes the discovery of stearic acid by the resolution of the soap of sheep fat into two distinct components. The next section contains a comparison of the different animal fats and a discussion of saponification. The final chapter is a summary and a series of conjectures on the immediate components of fats. Few areas of chemistry had been so thoroughly explored at the time Chevreul conducted his experiments. His discoveries led to the establishment of the great industry of stearin candles. According to the DSB, ?"Chevreul?'s Recherches is a full account of the chemistry of fats. He had revealed the nature of a large and important class of organic substances and had shown that they were composed of a few chemical species which were amenable to analysis and obeyed the same laws of chemical combination followed by simpler substances in the inorganic realm. The book is a model of complete, exhaustive research in organic chemistry.?" Chevreul (1768-1889), who lived to nearly 103 years old, was an active chemist for 80 years. The student of the eminent French chemist Vauquélin (1763-1829), he succeeded him as chair at the Muséum d?'Histoire Naturelle, a position which he held for over thirty years. Appointed director of the famous dye factory Gobelins, it was while there that he accomplished his important research on dyes and developed his remarkable analysis of colour.

Mr. Guthrie has not confined himself to the results of mere personal experience. He has evidently bestowed great pains in studying the works of the foreign ophthalmological writers, and he has exercised in general a just and liberal spirit of remark on the merits of their respective methods of treatment." - Guthrie's younger contemporary and countryman Middlemore also lauds this book .

Page 23/24 in facimile. * The very rare first edition.<br>Sir William Hillary, (1771-1847). Founder of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution 1824. A soldier who was created a Baronet on 8 November 1805 for his services to king and country. He settled at Fort Anne, Douglas in 1806 where he witnessed a large number of wrecks on the rocks in Douglas Bay. Living at Fort Anne, Douglas, Isle of Man, Hillary soon became aware of the treacherous nature of the Irish Sea, with many ships being wrecked around the Manx coast. He drew up plans for a lifeboat service manned by trained crews, intended not only for the Isle of Man, but for all of the British coast. In February 1823 he published this pamphlet; initially he received little response from the Admiralty but on appealing to the more philanthropic members of London society, including Thomas Wilson (MP for Southwark) and George Hibbert, chairman of the West Indies Merchants, the plans were enthusiastically adopted and the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck was founded on 4 March 1824 at a meeting in The Tavern, Bishopsgate Street, London..

        Cap. XCVI. An Act to provide... for the better Administration of Justice in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, and for the more effectual Government thereof

      London: George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1823. Folio, pp. [1341]-1362, armorial letterhead, fine. Convict surgeons empowered to punish at will. Historically significant Act of Parliament relating to the laws and courts of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, containing ten clauses directly pertaining to convict management. Importantly, this Act establishes the Supreme Court in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land and contains much detail it's regarding scope and powers. The second last clause allows for the future separation of Van Diemen's Land from the jurisdiction of the Governor of New South Wales 'at any Time seem fit to His Majesty'.One fascinating aspect of this Act regards a change in the status of surgeons aboard convict transports. Government appointed surgeons and other sanctioned medical officers are hereby authorised to effect 'moderate punishment or correction' of convicts under their care aboard transports to New South Wales. In this respect surgeons were to follow existing procedures aboard the hulks, with punishments similar to those 'inflicted by Law on Convicts confined on board Vessels in the River Thames by the Superintendent or Overseer of those vessels.' Curiously, this authority raised the prominence of surgeons in naval circles.Other clauses detail new laws regulating the labour of mechanics and craftsmen assigned to free settlers and the punishment of those caught assisting escaped convicts. Ironically, an entire section stipulates that any person sentenced to transportation who then commits a further offence regularly punishable by transportation shall be detained in New South Wales for the time of the additional sentence (thereby removing the need to banish felons from a place of banishment).Of special interest is a lengthy clause reinforcing the Act of 1790 authorising the Governor to remit the sentences of transported felons under his care. However, the Act laments the oversight of the Governors of New South Wales in duly informing His Majesty's agents in Britain of the full details of convicts granted pardons or conditional pardons at their discretion. As a result such pardons 'have not been inserted in the General Pardon of the Great Seal of Great Britain' and lack constitutional integrity. The Act tardily states that all such paperwork be completed by the first day of January for the following year.

FIRST FREE SKIN TRANSPLANTATION. - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. - ERSTE AUSGABE. Im Jahre 1818 führte Bünger die erfolgreiche Transplantation eines freien Hautlappens vom Oberschenkel zum Nasenersatz durch. Die Anregungen zu seinem Vorgehen hatte Bünger aus Nachrichten von jenem indischen Verfahren der freien Hautverpflanzug gewonnnen. Bünger verwendete einen freien Lappen vom Oberschenkel, von dem er "über die Hälfte der Dicke von der zu starken Fetthaut wegzunehmen für nöthig fand". Der Bünger'sche Lappen enthält also Oberhaut, Lederhaut und einen Teil des Unterhautfettgewebes. Der Lappen heilt bis auf den unteren Teil, aus dem Nasenspitze, Septum und Flügel entstehen sollten, gut an und vereinigt sich später mit gestielten Lappen vom Arm und Wange, die den letzten Defekt schließen. - Diese durch den Marburger Anatomen u. Chirurgen erfolgte Anwendung einer freien Hauttransplantation bei einem Lupus der Nase war von epochemachender Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung der plastischen Chirurgie. - - The first successful modern attempt at free skin transplantation. He used the method to restore the nose of a woman who had suffered for fifteen years from a skin eruption that caused the loss of here nose and affected other areas of the face so that a forehead or cheek graft was inadvisable. Christian Heinrich Bünger (1782-1842) chose as a donar site the superior lateral surface of the upper thigh, taking an oval piece of skin four by three inches which he trimmed to shape and applied to the freshened nasal region one and a half hour after removal, a delay caused by attempts to stanch excessive bleeding in the freshened area. The graft was partially successful and a year later other procedures, carried out on the upper lip and nose with a flap from the arm, successfully brought further improvement of appearance. - Gnudi & Webster. - Bünger's account appeared in the literature as an isolated case report, but it forms a tangible link in the historical chain of plastic, surgery. - Gnudi-Webster, 328; Wallace, Progress of Plastic Surgery, 134-35; Mc Dowell, Source Book of Plastic Surgery, 108-112; Mc Dowell, Zeis Index 1/ P.94 + No. 729; Zeis, Literatur.

        Der heilige Abt Antonius bei der Leiche des heiligen Eremiten Paulus von Theben

      um 1823 um 1823. Bleistift auf Papier, 38,5 x 29,8 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz Johann Georg von Sachsen (Lugt 4484). Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Die Begegnung der beiden ersten christlichen Eremiten Antonius Abbas und Paulus von Theben ist in der bildenden Kunst häufig dargestellt worden. Nicht nur auf dem Isenheimer Altar erscheint sie, sondern auch bei Dürer und vielen anderen. Besonders jene Szene, in der ein Rabe Paulus und seinem Gast einen ganzen Laib Brot zum Verzehr bringt. Josef von Führich wählte für das vorliegende Blatt allerdings die selten dargestellte Beerdigung des Paulus. Dieser spürte seinen kurz bevorstehenden Tod und bat Antonius, ihm den Mantel des heiligen Athanasius für die Beerdigung zu bringen. Noch auf dem Weg zu seiner eigenen Höhle erschien ihm der Geist des Paulus und als er zurückgekehrt war, fand er ihn kniend und mit zum Gebet erhobenen Händen. Da ihm für das Ausheben eines Grabes die Werkzeuge fehlten, näherten sich zwei Löwen und scharrten für ihn eine Grube. Eben jenen Moment verbildlicht Führich. In klaren Linien und mit prägnantem Faltenwurf zeigt er den niedergesunkenen Leichnam, der von Antonius' Knie gestützt wird, einer Beweinung Christi nicht unähnlich. So scharf umrissen und monumental erstarrt die beiden Heiligen sind, so diffus und wild sind die landschaftliche Umgebung und die beiden Löwen gezeigt. Alles konzentriert sich auf die Trauerszene, der Rest wirkt wie ein im Unscharfen verharrendes Beiwerk. Diese Fokussierung ist von besonderem Interesse, greift sie doch eine Tendenz der religiösen Historienmalerei auf, die in Overbeck ihren Gipfel erreicht hat. Nicht die Handlung steht im Vordergrund, sondern die Reflexion. Jegliche Aktivität wird in der abgetrennten und in sich festgezurrten Form der Heiligen stillgestellt. Im Vergleich mit einem der wenigen historischen Darstellungen der Szene wird dies besonders deutlich: Diego Velazquez hat sie in seiner Version gänzlich in den Hintergrund gedrückt und stattdessen die Ankunft des Raben fokussiert, wie die meisten anderen Künstler auch (Vgl.-Abb. 5)3. Hier lassen sich Handlung, Dynamik und Affekt vortrefflich darstellen. Doch Führich rückt die Kontemplation, das Einfühlen in den Vordergrund. Auch inhaltlich gibt er dies vor, wenn er Antonius in eben jener Stellung (kniend und mit erhobenen Händen) zeigt, in der er Paulus vorgefunden haben soll. Der Übergang der andächtigen Hingabe von Paulus auf Antonius soll Anleitung für den Betrachter sein, diesen Schritt ebenfalls nachzuverfolgen. Mit diesem Fokus auf die reflexive Leistung des Betrachters tritt die Verifikation der Szene durch genaue Naturnachahmung in den Hintergrund. Die Form richtet sich nach den Möglichkeiten der Einfühlung und wird dadurch auf klare Strukturen ohne Affekt und Handlungsklimax zurückgeführt. Führich stand mit dieser weniger an ästhetischer als an emotionaler Reinheit orientierten Linie im starken Gegensatz zu den akademischen Strömungen seiner Zeit in Wien. Erst die Begegnung mit dem Werk Dürers offenbarte ihm eine "Form, hervorgegangen aus der tiefen Erkenntnis ihrer Bedeutung"4, wie er in seinen Lebenserinnerungen schreibt. Es ist eben jene zur contemplatio anregende Reinheit der Form, die Führich in diesem frühen Blatt praktiziert, das noch vor seiner Begegnung mit Overbeck entstand. Es zeigt bereits, wie meisterhaft er es verstand, den Bleistift für diese Zwecke zu verwenden.
